One of the questions about Lotus Notes I see frequently is about Voting buttons. While it is certainly possible to modify the mail database template to include this functionality, a simpler implementation is to use a shared database that enables users to ask questions, choose some recipients and then have an email message sent to those people that contains a doc-link directing the recipient to their answer document.
A couple of years ago I knocked up a sample application for a customer to demonstrate this functionality, I've enclosed it here so you can customise and share.
Just change the ACL to include your own users group as Authors so the default security is enabled. Sign the application with an ID that's trusted to execute code. Then share with your users.
The database could easily be customised to modify the type of questions and responses required, eg: Yes/No, multiple choice, etc...
Voting Buttons in Lotus Notes? Sure ... it's Notes! Enjoy.

Yes, another year.
Wed, Jul 3rd 2013 6:28a Mat Newman Last year I wrote how thankful and fortunate I was that my IT consulting career began with Notes and Domino in July, 1995. 18 years ago today, and coincidentally, the month that IBM made it's offer to acquire Lotus Development Corporation. My 18th year as a Consultant, Educator, Administrator and Developer has been just as full, rewarding, and possibly busier than ever before.
